Minehead Development Trust


Minehead Development Trust became a recognised body in July 2010 having operated informally since 2008. 


The purpose of the Trust is to develop a range of community projects for the benefit of local residents and visitors to the town.


Trust members are drawn from a broad spectrum of local interests including Business, Arts and Culture, the Voluntary Sector, Heritage and Conservation. The Trust also benefits from the official support of Town, District and County Councils.

The Work of the Trust

Since May 2012, the Trust has run the new Minehead Information Centre on Minehead’s main thoroughfare, The Avenue.

The Trust is looking into the acquisition of Minehead Old Hospital for Community use and to use the site’s unique central location as a catalyst for social and economic revitalisation at the very heart of the town.
